Programming note

To clear up persistent confusion, we’ve gone ahead and rechristened this blog. In the beginning, there was a daily column called The Commons. Then we wanted to wrap it into a blog, which necessitated some sort of distinction between what was a column and what wasn’t, which gave rise to Beyond the Commons. Hilarity ensued.

So. The blog is now officially Beyond the Commons, no more need for the BTC tag that prompted regular requests for explanation. When a column appears here it will be clearly identified as The Commons.

Let’s never speak of this again.
